Slip back into another decade during happy hour at Nick's Restaurant at Rockaway Beach. Short happy hour menu with snacks to accompany your rolled back prices of selected cocktails. Right by the ocean, spacious bar with many small tables and you can hear yourself speak...More

The breakers are magnificent here -- better than other nearby spots -- possibly because there is less beach and more rocks. The city and businesses have done well in constructing a small promenade with cable fencing, sculpture, benches, and parking close to the water. You...More

We went to Rockaway Beach in Pacifica on the first day of October. It was a beautiful sunny day. Views were nice. Tide was out.

This short beach is between the hotel/restaurant and the see. Whale watchingnif you are lucky. Nice spot to eat a meal or picnic from a restaurant nearby

This is the Pacific Ocean meeting the West Coast of California. Be prepared to get wet if the big rollers are pounding. Some surf but generally for the locals

There have many days in the last 2 years that you can go to Rockaway Beach and catch the whales frolicking in the ocean. We were there last year and there were at least a dozen whales playing and breaching. Nice restaurants close by too.

If we lived close by, we'd come here for sunset every day. Really gorgeous. We were staying at one of the hotels there, though, so all we had to do was walk down to the beach and back to our room. I don't think there...More
